Michaela McManus will not return to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit next season, TVGuide.com has confirmed. McManus' character, Assistant District Attorney Kim Greylek, left the SVU in a March episode to return to Washington, D.C., a development that coincided with the reappearance of ADA Alexandra Cabot (Stephanie March). But it's looking like Greylek will remain inside the Beltway. March is scheduled to appear in four more episodes this spring. The One Tree Hill alum tweeted a thank-you message to the fans on Twitter about her departure from the show. NBC did not respond to TVGuide.com's request for comment. All of which raises the questions: Will SVU have a new ADA in the fall? And will she be played by Stephanie March? Source Here
NBC has renewed " Law & Order: Special Victims Unit ," but the two stars of the show, Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, still have no deals to return. After lengthy talks, the network has closed a pact with Wolf Films to bring the veteran crime drama back for an 11th season. Its two lead actors, who usually negotiate their contracts together, started talks with the network only last week. After a tough back-and-forth in 2007, Emmy winner Hargitay and Meloni inked rich two-year deals that brought their paychecks to about $350,000 an episode. But the networks are trimming costs because of the recession and slipping primetime ratings, and with NBC in the forefront of the budget cuts, getting raises will be much more difficult this time around. On the other hand, it's hard to imagine "SVU" continuing without Hargitay and Meloni. Crime procedurals have showed resilience after losing a lead actor -- most recently with CBS' " CSI : Crime Scene Investigation" subbing departing William Petersen with Laurence Fishburne -- but it's more difficult for an established show to survive the loss of both its female and male stars.

The good news: NBC has renewed Law & Order: Special Victims Unit , its highest-rated drama, for an 11th season. The bad news: The network is threatening to replace Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni, according to EW's Michael Ausiello. This shocking development comes as the two leads have reportedly banded together to negotiate pay increases in the form of a share of the back-end profits. An NBC representative told TVGuide.com that it is their policy not to comment on talent negotiations. While a hard-line threat is a common tactic in salary negotiations, it seems unlikely that NBC would follow through with the firings. But it raises the question: Could SVU exist without its two popular leads? Source Here
